The chapter draws on an australian branch campus case in vietnam. It addresses how work-integrated learning (wil) is incorporated into curriculum, pedagogies and institutional support. The findings show that wil enhances students work readiness, strengthens industry linkages and improves graduate employability. Wil should therefore be shifted from the periphery to the core of curriculum, teaching and learning, and institutional policy making. It calls for a joint effort of different stakeholders including students, academics, institution support staff, employers, policy makers and related communities. 2019, Springer nature singapore pte ltd.
